EDITORS’ NOTES

Some push the envelope—Alex Cameron rips it to shreds then dances in the confetti storm. By inhabiting a “failed artist” persona, Cameron and his saxophonist “business partner” Roy Molloy engage in surreal soft-rock cosplay. A running technique is stitching together couplets that force coffee through nostrils (example: “The devil’s in the deets/And the angel’s in the sheets”). His obsession with dark themes rivals David Lynch. And not far behind is Molloy’s kayfabe saxophone wail unfurling like a Chinese ribbon.

About Alex Cameron

Also known as a member of the Sydney, Australia electronic act Seekae, Alex Cameron made a name for himself as a high-concept singer/songwriter. On his first album, Jumping the Shark, Cameron crafted the persona of a show biz hack -- also named Alex Cameron -- as a vehicle for his wry electro-pop songs about hope and failure. The album was initially released as a free download on his retro-looking website in 2013, and Siberia Records issued the album on LP in 2014. Tours with Mac DeMarco, Kevin Morby, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Foxygen raised Cameron's profile, and Secretly Canadian gave Jumping the Shark a wider release in 2016. For his second album, Cameron expanded his concept and collaborators, working with Foxygen's Jonathan Rado, Angel Olsen and the Killers' Brandon Flowers on more sketches of outsiders and misfits. ~ Heather Phares
